Morpheus8 is a new, non-surgical, advanced radiofrequency microneedling system that used fractional radiofrequency application to remodel subdermal adipose tissue and collagen. It allows a 4mm depth penetration, a feature not possible with traditional microneedling systems. It is safe on all skin types, including Fitzpatrick VI.
Morpheus8 can target tissues of the face and body including abdomen, knees and vagina. It is best utilized with other skin tightening treatments such Accutite or FaceTite.
Another regenerative medicine treatment Dr. Hadi uses with great success is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP uses growth factors taken from the platelets in your blood to promote further collagen regeneration and increase circulation to the area.
All other treatment options that may be of benefit to you can still be performed after this treatment.
Dr. Hadi will apply a topical numbing agent to the area. You will relax for about 45 minutes while this takes effect. Once the anesthesia is achieved, the Morpheus8 treatments begins in a very tailored pattern by applying the device over the desired areas of treatment. With each pass, you will feel tiny little pin pricking while the energy is being delivered to the subdermal area. Depending on the level of skin tightening desired, a second or third pass over that area will be performed. Once the treatment is completed, a cooling agent such as Aquaphor ® is applied to help soothe the skin.
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, you can carry on with your day as you would normally. Downtime is around 1-2 days with very little restrictions.
